The Best Cake and Frosting

Yesterday I really wanted to make a dessert. Tuesday is kind of our family night because my husband generally comes home "on time" and we all get to enjoy being with each other. Well, that sort of happened, even though he worked overtime, had to mow the lawn before the sun went down (the neighbor finally mowed his, and we were sure the management would give us a notice to mow), we had dinner around 8pm. So I actually had time to make a dessert!

I saw the posts at Pioneer Woman and The Tasty Kitchen Blog, and I was set. Easy ingredients for homemade goodness. So I made these:

The Best Chocolate Sheet Cake. Ever.

That's the Best Frosting I've Ever Had (and it really is)

My modifications were that I obviously turned the sheet cake into cupcakes (but I baked them for about the same amount of time), and I added coloring to the frosting (kind of changed it a bit, so I guess I won't do that next time....or maybe it was because I beat the frosting too much while trying to diffuse my children beating up each other).

I am too lazy today to retype both of the recipes, so follow the links above. They're both easy and not so time consuming, but when you eat dinner at 8pm, I guess you have a lot of time.


  1. I saw that and wanted to try it, too.... Love the pic, it's so pretty!

  2. The Best chocolate sheet cake ever IS the best chocolate sheet cake ever! I love that recipe because it's just like how my grandmother used to make it, but I never got her recipe. Thank goodness for Pioneer Woman!

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog. That citrus sugar with white chocolate covered strawberries sound amazing! I've made PW's sheet cake and it is now a staple. :)
